A word from Fiestas Cafe & Cantina
The Marquez sisters, Debbie and Susan, use old family recipes brought to Colorado by their great-grandparents to create great Southwestern cuisine. Among the favorites are chicken enchiladas in a white jalapeño sauce and blue-corn enchiladas served Santa Fe style with an egg on top. Handmade corn tamales are stuffed with pork and smothered in a classic New Mexican-chile sauce. The eatery in Edwards Plaza is brightly decorated with New Mexican folk art and paintings. More than 20 tequilas keep the bar—and patrons—hopping.

    The Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas are delicious. And, their basic Margarita is one of the best I've had!

    Service was poor the minute we walked in. Hostess/Waitress took 6 minutes to greet us, as she walked by numerous times. Then during one passing, looked at me and said, sorry, it will be a few more minutes. No other greeting, such as Welcome etc... Then after we sat, it took atleast another 10 minutes to get someone (same Waitress/Hostess) to greet us at the table for at a minimum, a drink order. When she finally stopped by, she was in a hurry.... I mentioned to her, for a large party (we were 6), I would expect a couple baskets of chips and salsa, she walked. The entire dinner experience was in this fashion. Once the meal finally came, it was not even close to being worth the hassle of the whole experience. Avoid this place at all costs !

    I've visited and then lived in Edwards, CO for years. I've driven by this restaurant and never stopped. I had a house guest in the car and they suggested we give it a try.....and what a gem. Quaint place, not too large, outstanding staff and good food. We arrived around 5:30pm and by the time we left it was packed. Obviously others in the area had already found this wonderful gem in the midst of our community. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!

    We love Fiesta's! One of the restaurants we always book for a dinner whenever we're in the mountains. Food is not remarkable, but it is good. The staff is flexible, hard working and oh-so-friendly no matter how crazy busy the place is (and it gets CRAZY busy!).

    We dined twice at Fiesta's and Jamie was our server. He is an excellent server. Not intrusive, but still on top of drinks etc. We enjoyed our meals and the margaritas are good. I appreciate the Mexican Marg which has real like juice and no Sweet and sour. Santa Fe enchiladas w the fried egg are a favorite. We will be back!

    Nothing fancy hear. Just a neighborhood favorite for well done Tex Mex. Always crowded with locals. Friendly quick service. Try the Tom Apple combination plate and the delicious blue corn tortillas.

    Whenever we spend time in the Vail Valley we always visit Fiestas for lunch or dinner. It is family owned and operated and has been in business for many years. They are known for their blue corn enchiladas and white jalapeno sauce and they are delicious, along with most items on the menu. They have a good margarita list as well for those who want more than the typical "house" marg. Atmosphere is casual and it is family friendly, and the staff is always friendly.

    There was no sign of an Open Table system; however, if we get credit for going there (as we did) I guess it works for me.

    Food is so yummy. Waiter could have had some more personality. Service was slow, too slow for my children.

    Great well priced casual option. Fajitas are great. Sadly the guacamole is not. Still love this spot when I am craving Mexican.

  • Refused to honor an Open Table
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 12/30/2011
    Refused to honor an Open Table Reservation. Be wary of this bait and switch tactic. We arrived before our reservation time and the hostess said they do not accept reservations. I showed her the confirmation email from Open Table and she said it's something new we don't do, especially after 5pm. I found her especially rude.

    I have been eating at Fiestas for years whenever we come to the mountains to ski. As far as I know, they never accepted reservations in the past and the long wait was a downer. This year, I was surprised to find that they accepted reservations and made one for my party of 8. When I got to the restaurant, they were 4 other parties of 8-10 who had reservations at the same time as us. We finally we seated after waiting an hour. The management has no idea how to control the new reservation system--yhey should have told at least 2 of the 4 parties that there was no room on the night we ate there. The hostess became rude and over-emotional--at one point getting in a heated argument with a great-grandmother in her late 80s. Never AGAIN!!!!!
